Default What engine is this?

I got 2 of these engines off one of my friends (score!) and I want to know exactly what type they are, i know they are O.S .21's. Will they fit in my ultra MBX pro?

oh man, those are old engines! I don't think they will work because of the shaft type. What you have is a "threaded" shaft, what you need is an SG or "pilot" shaft. Basicaly what you have are a couple of Smithsonian Museum candidates. .(j/k)
